Pst...Karl it's New York not surprised. Wouldn't be surprised if California starts doing this next and then Chicago.
Rent, it is all over the US and in a lot of cases, the smaller the city, the worse. Only part of the problem is illegal search and seizure. The main problem is "Illegal" in the first place.
In the case Karl quoted, there wasn't any reason to stop this person. I don't think there is any good reason for most cop interventions in our lives. The DWI laws are bull**** and cops pull you over at night for next to anything to not enforce the law, but to broaden their net of catching people. I have been pulled over for more nonsense than you can count, namely the reason being the cop has orders to catch someone and likely if he don't, headquarters is going to want to know why. You don't have to be driving badly, just don't use your turn signal on an empty street. I was followed for over 2 miles before being pulled over for a bad tail light and wasn't allowed to look. I tried my best to fix it the next day, but for all practical purposes, it appeared to be working fine. He just made up the charge.
The biggest violation of this stuff is the income tax and as far as that goes, the new Obama care law. We don't sign any agreement with the government to show them our books. They have businesses that are taxed, like liquor, where if you want to get in the business, you enter into an agreement with the government. I believe this section of law was just as important, if not more so than the ordinary criminal stuff. Forcing us under color of law to reveal our information is quite overlooked.
